Hey moms, dads, aunts & uncles, and soon-to-be parents 👋 2020 has been a year for the history books, and while 'weirdest year ever' still feels like an understatement, we're feeling more hopeful that 2021 will bring new and exciting things!

There's no shortage of New Years Resolutions floating around the internet, but with broad suggestions like "eat healthy" and "be kind," many of these suggestions fall flat in the helpful department. After talking to over one hundred moms and dads just like you, we created 99 kid-friendly New Years resolutions that are actually useful for 2021 (because you deserve suggestions that don't suck).
